Lake Orion: The Community For A Lifetime

| Community

Lake Orion’s motto is “The Community For A Lifetime” with good reason. The majority of people who live here were born here and chose to stay. Right now the City is working on a plan to create an “aging-friendly” community. They are doing this via a survey which is about 5 minutes long. It asks specific questions to help them create a place where people want to come and live in Lake Orion and those who do live here continue to do so. Here’s a link to the survey – CLICK HERE.

One of our specialty areas is Lake Orion as we have helped residents buy and sell homes here for years. In the second quarter of 2017, the average consecutive days on market in the Lake Orion area was 46 days. They don’t last long in this community for good reason. You can read more about Lake Orion by clicking over to the community section of our website.  Also, to check out the market information on Lake Orion scan over to our latest Market Intel blog entry.

I wanted to focus on some Lake Orion activities that bring out the locals. The first one is the free Summer concert series at the Children’s Park.

Lake Orion Concerts

Bring your lawn chairs and/or blankets and enjoy the concert. A fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon and you can’t beat the price!!

Summertime is when the water often calls to us and if that’s the case with you then head over to the Indianwood Boat Launch. This is a public launch and so everyone is welcomed. If water is not your thing not to worry! There are other fun activities in the Lake Orion area.
